This is the seventh in a continuing series I call Critical Consensus. I am averaging the opinions of several excellent music critics to produce a list of each artist's albums. The albums will each have a rating between 1 and 10. The albums will be listed in a recommended purchasing order, so new fans will have an idea of where the best place to start buying an artist's work is. These are not my opinions, although, since I have chosen the critics used (and I'm using many), my taste will perhaps seep through a bit.
Terribly nerdy, I know, but maybe this will help people only now beginning to dabble into certain artists' bodies of work.
One note on Lennon's ratings: The rating for Imagine is for the original mix. The newly released remixed version was too new to gain a true consensus, but many critics had some misgivings about the remixing job, so the new version could score a bit lower than the original.
